Writers Roundtable May 1, 2018

 “Writing About Movies: The Art of Turning Pictures Back Into Words.”

We live (and have lived for a long time) in the age of the image. We can’t help talking and writing (and writing and writing …) about the images we see on screens big and small.

How do we describe what we see without descending into dry summarizations that lose the magic of the visual?

How do we describe films in a way that is as vibrant as the films themselves, sparking thought without lapsing into the banality of thumbs-up/thumbs-down verdicts?

On a deeper level, how do we write about and use the culture of the image in our own nonfiction and fiction?

Join us at 6:30 p.m. May 1 at the Paseo Verde Library’s Coffee Press Cafe for good conversation and great coffee! Moderated by Greg Blake Miller. WSN members free, guests $5.
